3.5 stars.

It is a graphic novel about the world of insects. The world is a nasty one with parasites, predators, etc. I am actually very happy that we - the humans - only see a small tip of the iceberg of this. To be more specific, the story is told in verse and is about a day of life of two insects, or creatures in all the gory details.

As far as illustrations, this book is easily rated 5+ stars: they are that good, even gorgeous. I thought about using a couple of them as a background on my deskt

I am intoxicated with Salsa Invertebraxa, written and illustrated by Mozchops aka Paul Phippen. It will be loved by those who embrace the eerie beauty of bugs as well those who admire great painting. The hard cover book is a high quality, ecologically conscious printing that is one of the best coffee table books you may ever encounter as well as a graphic novel laced together by an unconventional narrative poem. The written text is one part Dr. Seuss, one part Lewis Carroll,and other parts Walt ...more

Reason for Reading: The book looked beautiful and sounded interesting.

First off, let me say that I was not going to give this book a rating as I was flummoxed as to what I should rate it. This has never happened to me before but then when I thought about it, not giving the book a rating was copping out. My rating is like giving the book a 50%; I kind of feel like the right person would enjoy this book much more than I did and could deservedly give it a higher rating.

The illustration is absolutel

[2012-04-12] My book has arrived :o) Thank you Mozchops for choosing me to win one of your books on First Reads.

[21012-04-12 1900] Thought I'd have a quick look - read the whole book! The artwork is amazing; beautifully detailed and excellently imagined and executed. Close enough to real life to be recognisable, different enough to be magical. The story is simple in outline, but amazingly detailed and complex in execution - just like life.

A definite "must read" for all ages.

I am so pleased I won

The pictures are absolutely amazing. I can't get over the movement and atmosphere they capture. It's reminiscent of science fiction, which is more than just the alienness of the insect world, or the made up species.

The writing was occasionally clever or poignant, but mostly it was a distraction from the gorgeous drawings. It seemed to come from a different world than the illustrations. I wasn't too excited about anthropomorphized insects, but by the end I decided it was quite well done.
